I've been at TAU for the past four years. I did my Master's in Food Safety and Security and am currently doing my Ph.D. in Molecular Studies in Plants (specializing in tomatoes). The program gave me a lot - I met many students from different countries. It was an eye-opening experience to meet other students, learn about their culture and nations, and learn more about Israel. The program also helps you build your career in research, or you can take the skills you've learned back to your home country. My current research is in tomatoes to ensure a higher crop production from little resources.

This program has allowed me to look at safety and security from a holistic perspective. One of the program's main goals is how to solve real-world problems; in my experience, this program has been fruitful in allowing me to find solutions.
TAU, in general, is a fantastic place! Full of scientific minds, you have to be ready with your elevator pitch and are pushed to develop yourself academically and socially.
Our future in this world relies on sustainability, and this program reflects that. Living in Tel Aviv is wonderful - a once in a lifetime experience for me - I get to know and have made many new friends from all over the world.

Researching at Tel Aviv University was both extremely useful and very fulfilling. Not only did I meet amazing people, but I also had access to fantastic equipment and resources, received the best possible guidance, and I gained exceedingly valuable experience. The knowledge and experience I gained during the internship played a direct role in obtaining a Ph.D. scholarship in the United Kingdom. It's fair to say that I would not be where I am in academia today without Tel Aviv University.
